Good week!

This week was pretty good!!! 

First of all, the first counselor of the area presidency, Elder Waddell, came to speak with us! Yeah a 70 came to talk with us! He was super cool! He talks like a Latino! I felt the spirit soooo strong and learned soooo much!! I'll just have to read you my journal when I get home about it. 

Then we have a new family we are teaching! The Suarez family, has a potential wedding, 2 potential rescues and 2 potential baptisms! We are so happy to be teaching them because for the longest time, they didn't want to go back to church at all!  We went over there and had one lesson with them and that night they went to a church activity that we had with all of their daughters and they went to church the next day!!! I'm finally seeing some great things in this area! 

Well I'm out of time this week but I love you soooooo  much and I want you to remember how much you mean to me!!!! Never forget how much God loves you too!!!! Until next week!!!

 Hermana Favero's email was really short this week but she sends her love to everyone and she sounds great! She also included her Christmas wish list but I didn't want to bore you all with that haha.
So I don't have a lot to write about this week but this last week we divided the area with the elders so now our area is a lot smaller and we will have two new converts to teach from the elders because they are in our limits. I've got pictures coming to you. They are the family who we helped raise money for. They finally got baptized and now we will be able to watch them grow even more in the gospel. I'm so excited!

Hi mommy!!!!!! I was able to have the amazing opportunity to watch conference this last weekend and this was one of my favorite parts and I had a feeling I should share it with you. I know you watched but why not haha
L Tom Perry-
We must carefully continue to evaluate our performance as parents. The most powerful teaching a child will ever receive will come from concerned and righteous fathers and mothers. Let us first look at the role of the mother. Listen to this quote from President Gordon B. Hinckley:
“Women who make a house a home make a far greater contribution to society than those who command large armies or stand at the head of impressive corporations. Who can put a price tag on the influence a mother has on her children, a grandmother on her posterity, or aunts and sisters on their extended family?
“We cannot begin to measure or calculate the influence of women who, in their own ways, build stable family life and nurture for everlasting good the generations of the future. The decisions made by the women of this generation will be eternal in their consequences. May I suggest that the mothers of today have no greater opportunity and no more serious challenge than to do all they can to strengthen the [home]” 

I hope your week was amazing and I just want you to know that I have decided that I want you and daddy to come and get me when I'm done with my mission! Haha That would be the best!!! 
Anywhoo!!! That  is completely amazing What Drew`s mom told daddy!!! Do you know who told him!??  I'm so happy that these tender mercies keep coming up!!! I love it!!!! Any way I don't have any pics this week but I should have some next time! I love you soooooo much and I hope you have an amazing week!!!! 
Stay close to the spirit and study the talks from conference! Study them hard because they are the scriptures of this time for us right now! I know that our leaders are called of God and that they tell us exactely what we need to hear in this time of age. I love you and I'll talk to you next week!!!

The gift of tongues

Oh my goodness!!!! I love all of the pics!!!!!! Everyone looks sooo good!!! 
So about mi hija! Hermana Rochette is from Idaho and she is amazing! She is fresh from the CCM! I feel like I'm looking back in time at myself in the beginning! Her Spanish isn't that great but she is working so hard to get it! I can't believe that I'm training already! I've only been in the field a little over 4 months!!! I feel like God has way too much trust in me sometimes! We'll be alright haha we`ll learn together.
So we are teaching this family ( Familia Suarez) and they are awesome! They love having us over and they have been coming to church with us but they won't commit to a date to be baptized! They tell us that they have to prepare more. It's super frustrating but we'll get'em! :P
The other day, a kid sitting on the sidewalk stopped us and asked us what we teach. We were really surprised! No one has ever done that before! We gave him a contact card and wrote down his address. Sadly, he doesn't live in our area but we've got friends everywhere so someone will get him haha. 
Also, something else that has changed is the ward council! They have finally started working like a ward council! Before, they just argued and only a few people would go! Now, they are actually giving ideas and all of the presidencies of all of the organizations come!!! We're actually going to get stuff done now! 
So with my new responsibility, my mind is in every place at once! These past few days have been crazy but when we are in lessons, I feel the gift of tongues working so much! With out that gift and the Spirit with me, I'm not sure what we would do. 
Anywhoo... I hope everyone is doing great and everyone is happy!!!! Never forget that just because you don't have a missionary name tag, doesn't mean you aren't a missionary!!! Share this "good news" with everyone you can! I love you all soo very much and I'll talk to you all next week!!!!!
